On areas of agreement

There's plenty of room for debate as to whether Peter Julian's budget filibuster should be seen to have its greatest impact in empowering Canadians who don't hold a seat in Parliament, or in limiting participation by other elected representatives.

But it does seem worth noting that while even a couple of NDP MPs raised questions about Julian's unlimited time, one rather significant group of parliamentarians hasn't much seemed to care one way or the other. And particularly given Julian's explanation that he didn't see any point in the Cons using budget debate time to spout their talking points, doesn't it seem noteworthy that their silence seems to signal agreement?
